Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

In many situations, this may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services.

In brief, Trip Cancellation insurance may allow you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.

I enjoyed all aspects of this expedition. Our guides provided professional education and expertise on the mountain while doing so in a fun and personable manner. Their knowledge of the mountain and its changing conditions ensured a safe and successful summit.
